may come close but in single gpu form TitanX will hold its crown and still maintain zero V-ram limitations
See I don't know if I buy into the single card argument here. I know you are coming from a 690 which has been a great card (and I still have mine..lol), but sli has not been too much of an issue for me, until NV decided to take a dump on the drivers in favor of focusing its resources on Tegra or whatever...
The way I look at it, by the time you will start seeing any v-ram limitations beyond 4-6gb, i.e. by getting into a higher resolution such as 4k, etc, you will need to add another card to maintain the fps at min 60 at 4k. So, in other words, you will run out of grunt, before running out of vram.. this is just my opinion, as I have always preferred more horsepower over any sli issues (I know, I know crim would disagree...
I am also not certain if TitanX will hold its "performance' crown against custom cards from EVGA, (Asus, etc, or even custom pcb for 390x?), as those cards will come with much beefier vram for over volting/ over clocking. Otherwise, there will no reason to introduce a custom pcb... just my two cents
But, I wish well to anyone who buys this card,and I am sure that they will enjoy it....
